Favorite quote: “You never know who you touch. You never know how or when you’ll have an impact, or how important your example can be to someone else.” — Denzel Washington

Other interesting facts: I collect coins and baseball cards and am an avid bowler.

Why I teach: I teach to pass the knowledge and ability on to others. If you can reach a student and make his or her life or their family’s life better, then what better accomplishment is there?
